"Adrienne Keene is a phenomenal voice for social justice, equity and inclusion issues period. Her analyses of the challenges Native students face on campuses and in society-at-large are critically excellent and engaging. Dr. Keene's work and personal story is an important call to action to create supportive campus communities for underserved Native students and to address to the broader issues of racist stereotypes and cultural appropriation. The community of the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education enthusiastically appreciated her Keynote Address at NCORE 2015. It was awesome! If you bring her to your campus, you'll see why."
— Justin Lincks, Program Coordinator, National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE)
"It has been nothing short of phenomenal to watch the growth of Dr. Adrienne Keene’s blog “Native Appropriations.” The blog has become so popular because Adrienne’s voice and perspective resonate with so many struggling to be heard in a world where we often feel we have no cultural capitol."
— Sedelta Oosahwee, Associate Director, White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education Office
"Dr. Keene's provocative work as the social media activist, educator, and author of Native Appropriations creates critical crucial change in spaces where our Native voice is often silenced. Her ability to articulate complex issues ranging from the Native college experience to cultural appropriation will challenge people's perceptions and offer audiences unique insight into the contemporary Native American experience. I have no doubts that her words will resonate with anybody who has the opportunity to hear her."
— Matika Wilbur, leading Native American photographer, artist and social documentarian in Indian Country
"Adrienne was absolutely wonderful! The students really connected with her personally, as well as her work around social justice issues.
